A day made for celebratin'
Then a super fun cousin sleep over.
And the next day was his lego party with his friends from school.
I will not point out which one of these boys has called our home every.single.day since he received his party invitation. Mostly he called just to tell me how many more days until the party. Or that he had bought a gift. Or that he had wrapped it. Or to ask what Sam was doing. And on the day before the party, he called like 8 times. It was so sweet I thought I could die. But should it have continued after the party? A change of phone number may have been required.
Emily was my right hand girl helping to serve these young men, refill drinks, assist with lego car repairs and scooping the ice cream. Allyson never even came out of her room. I could have really used some additional girl back up.
All in all- success. I'm pretty sure I need to step it up a notch next year. Maybe some gross green goo drink, bug snacks or fake vomit. For the most part they kind of looked at me like a kook when I suggested stopping playing to have some lego looking pizza and for not having a pinata for them to beat on with sticks. Live and learn.
